Really enjoyable stay, hotel was on the front overlooking the bay, great pool, staff were friendly, room was nice. One tip - make sure you request a room at the front of he hotel overlooking the bay as the view is excellent, but only 50% of the rooms have this view.

I only stayed one night before heading to a cruise in the bay however found the hotel easy to find, very clean and had great helpful staff. I stayed in one of the Villa's outside the main hotel and they were very quiet (rare in Vietnam!), and the room was a great standard.

French owned cruise ship up to 60 passengers. Ship is about 16 years old (as of April 2014) and has had cabins recently refurbished but cabin showers old style marine/yacht and should be modernised to at least mobile home standards.
Cabin layout tight and bed arrangements need to be reviewed as cluttered and tight.
Overall good time plenty of open and undercover areas. One night 2 day programme is short and 2 night programme needs revamping as you repeat 1 night voyage or need to transfer to another ship.
Staff pleasant and friendly especially if you are polite to them and attempt to speak Vietnamese.
Only real draw back is all drinks are very costly. Other cruises are said to be generally not as good.
